Carmex Review and Giveaway

I have loved Carmex every since I was a little girl and my Mother handed me a little jar with a yellow lid to help my chapped lips. It was love at first application. You may remember my excitement when I was accepted to be a member of the Carmex Blog Squad. Well, I was recently sent an amazing package from Carmex. This package included:

  • 1 Carmex Lime Twist twist stick
  • 1 Carmex Vanilla twist stick
  • 1 Picnic blanket
  • 1 Carmex Moisture Plus® clear satin gloss finish

The first thing I tried was the Moisture Plus and it is now my new favorite Carmex product. This stuff is amazing. It is clear and slides on smooth. It has Vitamin E, aloe and SPF 15. So, not only does it keep your lips moist, but it protects them from the sun! I think that the moisture plus lasts a lot longer than the other lip glosses that I have tried in the past. I also love that it is Carmex "jar" quality without having to get your finger sticky. : )

I also really love the twist sticks. I was able to try the lime and the vanilla. The lime flavor is really unique and yummy. The vanilla is precisely what you would expect; a deep, rich and delicious vanilla flavor. The twist sticks also have SPF 15 to protect your lips from the sun. The twist sticks are moisturizing and may be better for people that are "habitual lip gloss appliers" (You know who you are!) since the twist sticks go on a little thinner than the Moisture Plus.

The fourth item I received was a really cool bonus: the picnic blanket. This picnic blanket is really unique and pretty innovative. It rolls up into an easy to carry package. When you unroll it, it is bigger than you would expect. It has two sides: one comfy side to sit on and one side that is meant to touch the ground. The under side is a material that is easy to wipe off and clean. The picnic blanket also has a pocket for keeping change, carmex and other goodies in while you picnic. It is definitely my new favorite picnic/ concert/ outdoor event blanket. 


One lucky winner will win the same package I received!!
